Angels play an important role in the Bible and so they deserve to be looked at and studied. Typically, there can be a few extremes to avoid with Angels to where they are either ignored altogether or the subject of Angels-holy or fallen-can consume the imagination to the detriment of things that really matter most. From the Scriptures we can tell that the Angels are very powerful creatures. And they are creatures, created by God. They do not create as does God. Angels have great power that has been delegated to them by God and great wisdom and knowledge which makes us humans look like great simpletons by comparison. Yet it is important to remember that the power of Angels remains limited and thus cannot be compared to the infinite power of God even though compared to us the power of Angels is very great. From the Scriptures it is apparent that the Angels do have a great deal power and influence over the affairs of men in influencing government. More specifically, each child is said to have been supplied with an angel who appeals to God on their behalf. This is a ministry of angels which the Scriptures declare extends to all believers. In this earth the Angels act as agents to carry out the will of God in the Earth.
Yet the Scriptures declare that not all of the Angels are holy, but that there are nefarious angels. These dark spirits were led by rebellion by one of the chief angels of all the angels, Lucifer. Some people have dismissed these demons as hogwash and the imagination of the latter period of the Bible; however, the doctrine of Satan goes back to the earliest books of the Bible. Its actually the imaginations of the higher critics which is hogwash. As the holy angels work out good in the world, the demons work out evil in the world and are responsible for even possessing people. These possessions should not be confused with medically diagnosed issues. These possessions should be understood to be distinct from the medical conditions such as epilepsy. Some of the greatest proofs of the Messianic mission of Jesus come from His exorcisms of these dark spirits.
